We received 87.8 mm(3.4 inches) of rain yesterday. I was going to clean my eave troughs on Friday but put it off. Big Mistake. The Queen and me spent Saturday evening using a wet vac to keep the basement from flooding. It would have taken much less time to clean the troughs. I wasn't alone in my nmisery though. The neighbor was doing the same thing at his home.
The Red River in Winnipeg was rising and is expexcted to crest on June 6. The city of Winnipeg has issued a warning that some baserments could flood.
IIf given a choice 'd rather have clean rain water than muddy river water in my basement.
